David Westlake

It's hard to believe sometimes that this is my life.  Teaching yoga, celebrating a cycle class, and sharing interesting ideas with all of you...wow!  I get to do this everyday.  For me, the awe that I feel about where I am and what I do is a testimony to yoga at it's deepest core.  It has led me on a path to places  that exist beyond my wildest dreams.  Yes! If you listen to it's call, yoga will take you on the most wildly authentic journey you will ever go out upon.  It's out there! As an instructor, my most sincere hope is that you might start to see (even if just a small glimpse) of your authentic path glistening before you in one of my classes.  Namaste! 

Star Amoureux

Star's first introduction to yoga was a Kundalini class over 27 years ago at the University of Oregon. After that, ssh was hooked. For the next ten + years she continued to practice Kundalini whenever and where ever she could. During the same time, Hatha yoga began to gain in popularity, and she started taking classes in gyms and yoga studios. "I consider myself a universalist, studying and enjoying many styles, of yoga, "say's Star. "I have taken training in an array of styles and fuse together the elements of these styles into my classes."

She continues to study yoga with local teachers Siva Rothstein and recognizes Katey Inman, Stephanie Keach, and Shala Worse as some of her formative teachers.

Star's philosophy is that yoga can be playful yet powerful and through an in-depth exploration of the physical body we can experience the philosophy of yoga in a visceral way.

Trained in more than seven styles of yoga and having taught for over tens years, Star is a gem of a teacher, and she is guaranteed to rock your asana!

Angela Houston

My yoga journey began long before I attended my first official yoga class. A series of difficult life circumstances left me empty and searching for peace and centeredness. I didn't know it at the time but this was the perfect environment to plant the seed of yoga. One Christmas, I received a gift card to Anchorage Yoga and my life has been forever changed.

I graduated AY Teacher Training in 2015 and now feel so honored to teach beside the very same practitioners who instilled the love for the practice within me.

Andrea Boyette

Growing up in Alaska I have always enjoyed the outdoors and the adventure of living in this great state. Snowboarding is one of my passions. After breaking my pelvis in three places while snowboarding in 2003, I became interested in yoga as part of my rehabilitation. Immediately I was opened up to a world that forever changed my life. I began Hatha and Anusara teacher training in 2012 with Karen Greenwood at Inner Dance, and I am forever invested as a student. My goal is to share the ten years of education and knowledge that has been passed on to me in this great community. My educational back ground includes; Certified 1st degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. I am also a Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor; 200 hr Yoga Alliance RYT. Currently I am studying at the University of Alaska Anchorage; Bachelor of Science: Major in Health and Group Fitness, Minor in Athletic Training and Nutrition.
(all levels) This well-supported, slow-paced Hatha yoga focuses on basic yoga poses attention to breathing, alignment, and mindfulness. Therapeutic in nature, you will learn techniques to help you gain strength and flexibility while immersing yourself in a relaxing environment. This class is a perfect place to begin a yoga practice or just slow it down a little bit.
